I want to make a dishcloth, Log Cabin style, and I was wondering, do different gauges and weights of yarn matter?

Because it's a stash buster, I thought you'd probably be able to use different thickness's of yarn, but I'm not really sure.
Do people swatch in the different yarns to figure out gauge and then pick up that number of stitches?

I did search craftster on this topic but haven't been able to come up with anything.

Anyone made anything Log Cabin style?

Gauge shouldn't matter.  How much you can pick up in terms of stitches will determine how big the new section will be. Smiley
